The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum
memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported
at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically
detects memory type, size, and speed.
The motherboard supports the following memory features:
- 168-pin DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
- 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM
- Non-ECC (64-bit) and ECC (72-bit) memory
- 3.3 V memory only
- Unbuffered Single- or double-sided DIMMs in the following sizes:
2M x 64
2M x 72
4M x 64
4M x 72
8M x 64
8M x 72
16M x 64
16M x 72
32M x 64
32M x 72
Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) can be installed in one, two, or three
sockets. EDO DIMMs are not supported. Memory size and speed can vary
Intel® Pentium® II processors
with 100 MHz front-side bus should be paired only with 100 MHz SDRAM. Processors
with 66 MHz front-side bus can be paired with either 66 MHz or 100 MHz SDRAM.
All memory components and DIMMs used with the Intel® SE440BX-2 motherboard
should comply with the PC SDRAM specifications. These include: the PC SDRAM Specification (memory
component specific), the PC Unbuffered DIMM Specification, and the PC Serial
Presence Detect Specification.
It is recommended that SPD memory DIMMs be used with the SE440BX-2
motherboard. However, the BIOS will allow the use of non-SPD DIMM memory.
So the max you can go is 3 x 256 MB.
Thanks and please take a moment to rate fixya.
